Art can heal, shock, instruct, inspire, provoke thought and sometimes provoke action. If you were to make an artwork about our nations' response to the destruction of the Twin Towers, what would it look like? What would it "say"? Would your art piece be about the fallen firefighters? Would you remember the innocent people who died? What did the towers represent? What materials would you use? What do you think the public would say/think about your 9-11 artwork? Would it be a tribute, an historical commemoration or a controversial question?
Think about your ideas surrounding this historic event in the life of the United States. Describe a concept that you would make in response to what happened to our country at the moment the planes crashed and then in the years after. Some examples of art that speaks about our country at war are; The Vietnam War Memorial, and the statue of the flag- raising at Iwo Jima which commemorates the sacrifice of American soldiers in Japan during WWII. You can also research mural art of the underground artist, Banksy, who has commented through his art on many controversial subjects.
I'm looking forward to reading your proposals for a painting or sculpture or other kind of artwork based on the reflection suggested in this post.
Here are some examples by professional artists that were inspired by historic national and international events
